In this tutorial you are going to learn how to teach your puppy peekaboo. Peekaboo is a fun behaviour where your puppy goes round behind you before standing or sitting between your legs.

To get started have your puppy in front of you and holding a treat between your finger and thumb slowly lure your puppy around the outside of your leg. Mark as your puppy moves behind you and reward with your opposite hand between your knees.

Repeat several times, building up the duration that your puppy stays in position by feeding treats one after another as long as they remain in place.

Next step is to remove the food from your hand and use only a hand signal to guide your puppy.

Practice until your puppy is promptly offering the behaviour. You can then attach the cue peekaboo, by saying the cue word just before you give the visual hand signal.

After enough repetitions your puppy will understand the verbal cue.
